Bhoomika has no airs about her newly attained stardom. She's simple, yet elegant. With her graceful movements, warm smile and a great blockbuster movie to her credit, Bhoomika has carved a niche for herself in the hearts of many. As a bright faced college girl, she caught the attention of ad film-makers in Mumbai. Her campaign for Ponds powder became so popular, that inevitably the film offers followed.
She feels glad that she had started her career with ad films. It is there where she had learnt nuances of acting and expressions. She has debut in hindi films from Tere Naam in 2003 opposite Salman Khan. It was hit. After that her one more film released in this year(2004), Run opposite Abhishek Bachchan.
Bhoomika has been inevitably flooded with offers from both in tamil and telugu industry. Yet, contrary to the general grain, she has not jumped at them. Instead, she has decided to take things one at a time. 'I don't like to clutter my plate,' she says matter of factly. Her conviction is so deep-seated that she has refused a film with Manirathnam.

She is into acting because she loves it. Critics saw in her performances, in Kushi and Tamil Badri and Rojakootam, a spark and spontaneity that even seasoned artistes find difficult to achieve. 'She is an absolute natural. Combine this with her beautiful looks, you have an actress who is bound to go places,' says a film critic.
She said her ambition is to win a National Award for Best Actress after winning the hearts of audiences, with the support and appreciation of colleagues of Cinema field. She is simple and enjoys what she is doing. Her only credo in life is, give your best and enjoy your work.
